The polo theory of how well exams go
I've always hated exams, mainly because I can never tell how they go. As a young boy as I always used to think they went well, mainly due to the elation of finishing the exam, and then they would go badly…
So I now refrain from saying how they went.
Except the other day I came up with a way of telling:
I take a pack of spearmint polos in with me to all exams. I always have one whilst Im reading the questions. So thats one polo down.
If its a bad exam, I will not be writing much, mainly thinking about what Im supposed to be doing. And at this point I will be stuffing more polos down my throat. For instance, Psychobiology, was a 5–6 polo exam.
All the others have been 1–2, because I have no time to eat them, Im engrossed in what Im writing and thinking about the rest of the essay.
Hopefully today's exam will just be a 1 polo exam, but Im thinking it might be more of a 3 polo.
